Hello Everyone,

I am at my beginning stage of my weight loss journey. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I am struggling with trying to exercise everyday. Any suggestions ???

My doctor told me when I started to just start off slow at 2x a week and then just slowly up it. I was exercising 4x a week when I had my surgery. Now I can't exercise at all due to a non-surgery related health issue... but it was good advice for me when I started. You can always ask your doctor for their own advice if it'll make you feel more comfortable.

TatiannaL, Congratulations for taking the big step in deciding to choose a healthier life, and WELCOME HERE! My Dr. suggested that walking is the best and maybe most effective exercise to do. Start slowly and increase each week, as able.

I wish you an exciting, rewarding journey to a new and improved YOU!!💖

I use workout videos on YouTube. You can do them at home for free. Someone here recommended Leslie Sansone Walk at Home, and she has a lot of free videos on YouTube. I think they're great for beginners because they're pretty simple, most don't require any equipment, and you can start with short ones (10-15 minutes) and work your way up to longer ones.

You don't have to exercise EVERY day, especially not at the beginning right after surgery. Take it slow and do a little at a time. Even 10 minutes of stretching at home counts as exercise. Don't rush it.
